1. Garth Zeglin is a professional roboticist and a journeyman artist. His day job is developing legged robots at the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute, but his quest is finding his artistic voice in more poetic machinery. His current projects include robots suspended in the air, talking mirrors, and pneumatic percussion instruments. He is fascinated by elegantly simple technology and dynamic behavior, and he seeks to balance his love of gadgetry with the expressive needs of the work. The talk will include a short overview of past projects, then zoom in on current work, presenting both technical and artistic rationales, and culminate in a live demo during the break.
